Team News: Atlas
There is just the lone fitness concern for the Atlas manager Diego Cocca to contend with thanks to an almost full-strength group of players. Edgar Zaldívar (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) is sidelined.
It’s our opinion that Los Zorros will probably kick off with a 4-4-2 system in the match with Camilo Vargas, Germán Conti, Hugo Nervo, Jesús Angulo, José Abella, Jesus Isijara, Lorenzo Reyes, Renato Ibarra, Víctor Malcorra, Javier Correa and Luciano Acosta.
Team News: Mazatlán
Owing to a completely healthy squad available for selection, Mazatlán boss Francisco Palencia doesn’t have any fitness worries at all ahead of this match.
We believe Mazatlán could decide to play in a 4-3-3 lineup by sending out Fraga, Efrain Velarde, Nicolás Díaz, José Ortiz, Paddila, Martín Rodríguez, Mendoza, Aldo Paúl Rocha, Rodrigo Millar, César Huerta and Miguel Angel Sansores.
When taking all factors into account, Mazatlán are certainly able to get a goal against this Atlas lineup, although that possibly won’t quite prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We’re tipping a narrow 2-1 win for Atlas at the end of this one. There shouldn’t be much in it, either way.
